I’ve been sick with the flu and strep throat that I’ve only had the energy to make tea and go back to bed. I don’t use the word hate very often since I find it to be a very strong word. But in this case I’m going to use it.
I HATE being sick, it really messes up my week. I can’t remember spending this much time in bed!! I’m so bored but luckily I’m getting the sleep I need to get better.
I made a big pot of lentil soup a few days ago and that’s what I’ve been having.
My favorite snack that soothes my sore throat and is low is carbs is canned pears by DelMonte. It has No Sugar and it’s packed in water. Half a cup is just 8 carbs.I’m hoping that I’ll be rewarded for being sick and the scale Gods will be kind to me when I weigh in.
It all started saturday morning when my daughter said she wasn’t feeling too good. We took her to the Dr and they took a swab for strep and still haven’t heard back from them. Well since then she’s been vomiting, fever and now a terrible dry cough that keeps her up all night.
Yesterday both my husband and I were both hit with the same syptoms as my daughter. Hopefully I lose some weight, I mean something good has to come out of all of this. Right?Right now she’s at the Dr’s, we want to see if she has throat infection or something. I’ll update when they come back.
And then there was one…my son is not sick thankfully. He’s praying he doesn’t get sick since Friday is his birthday.
I hate flu season!!
What are some of your remedies for the flu?
